New Release & Forthcoming Highlights

Almodovar’s VOLVER – 12 February

Already a winner at Cannes and an Oscar nominee this year, Almodovar’s latest ’emotional farce’ tells the story of a mother who returns from the grave to settle the family issues she couldn’t sort out when she was alive.  Whilst Penelope Cruz stars in the lead role, the entire female cast shared the Cannes prize for Best Actress, giving an indication to the strength of performances in this touching comedy drama.  With a second disc packed with interviews and footage, order your copy here…
